In mid-May 2012, I visited the site of Maqueta de la Habana and found the gates closed and locked with chains. My driver asked around and was told the building is closed for remodeling with no indication when it will re-open.

Do see the model before you embark on discovering the City, then re-visit it again at the end of your trip - gives you an impressive perspective on the City!
